Subject: Re: Profile guidance

Hi Elysa and all -

I can join tomorrow's call if you think the whole TC wants to
participate in the conversation. However for now I am not sure what
issues you have encountered or what guidance you are looking for so
perhaps it is better if we schedule a separate call with whoever would
be directly interested in this topic.

Let me know which you prefer...
